Career Tips & Resources

The E-Scholars program supports ventures from all industries and technology types. Over the years, the program has supported businesses developing mobile apps, enterprise software, medical devices, consulting businesses, retail and restaurants, fashion businesses, not-for-profit organizations, education and many more. The common thread is that E-Scholars ventures are all, to varying extents, early-stage ventures. Most of these tend to fall more in the idea stage, seeking to launch; others have already launched in some way, but are still very early-stage and looking to create a systematic growth plan.
